We all know MC Lyte as the fire spitting emcee! In addition to music, she acts, DJs, radio and more! MC Lyte is destined to become a female legend in out time!

Hip-Hop pioneer MC Lyte understands the responsibility of being a legend. She kicked open the door for women in Hip-Hop when the genre was still considered a passing fad and has remained a staple in the game for the last quarter century. Despite continuing to blaze her own trail in the entertainment business, she is also readying the next generation of women to take over the world long after she’s gone. MC Lyte, through her philanthropic work, has encouraged young women to unlock their power, self-esteem, and individuality through the arts.
While the empowerment of young women has always been a cause for the “Paper Thin” MC, this Black History Month, she’s linked up with AT&T’s 28 Days campaign. Lyte, along with Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross and tech journalist Wayne Sutton, will be leading a small team of people to support the mission of three respective charities. MC Lyte is leading a team for the WriteGirl organization. The organization serves about 350 young girls and helps tap into the potential through poetry and creative writing.
MC Lyte was kind enough to talk to The Urban Daily about her involvement in AT&T’s Black History Month program 28 Days, whether or not Hip-Hop deserves its own month to reflect on its own history, and how she would like to be remembered. Sit at the feet of one of Hip-Hop’s elders and soak up the wisdom.
